Members of Wake and District piped and drummed our way into the grass circle one last time for 2014 — this time in Richmond for the Central Virginia Celtic Festival & Highland Games — which were held under sunny skies on Saturday, 25 October 2014.  Our G4 members were anxious to give our MMSR and Medley one final run.

In Grade 4 we placed 1st (1-1-2-1) with our MMSR and we challenged up to Grade 3 against the MacMillan and Richmond Pipe Bands (both excellent  programs) and finished 3rd; we received some really positive comments from the judges and the other Grade 3 bands.  As noted by one of the G3 judges — “best tenor|bass line today!” #SASS

To the committee of the games – WELL DONE on an organized, friendly and relaxing games. To the “Mid-Atlantic” bands — WOW — thank you for your hospitality and the recognition as we approached the line and left the circle. Ya’ll are a classy group; we hope to see more of you in 2015…

The competition circle is now empty and the skirl of the pipes and rattle of the drums has come to a end for the 2014 EUSPBA competition season.

We had a fantastic season – and learned so much; we will wrap that up in another post.

There is a lot of hard work ahead of us (more to come on that).  

Don’t stand easy just yet…
